CS confirmed that SIG will update all their shipped MCX rifles to get everyone on the same hardware - before they begin shipping our pre-ordered 300Blk kits. No timeline is currently available as they're not sure how long these upgrades will take...

Cheers

On hold for 20 min. They want me to send in the entire rifle. They are also requesting my tax stamp for the SBR. Interesting that they are going to change to the updated trigger. my Geissele trigger is new. I hope they don't swap it out and keep the old one. I hope they swap triggers and let me keep the old one. Id rather sell it than give it up.

When I spoke to the CS rep they said it is just a new hammer they install which is compatible with the new BCG. Not an entirely new trigger.

From looking at the diagram I think it will be more like the takedown pins. So you will still be able to remove the firing pin for cleaning but the retaining pin will be captive.

Im okay with that. The person I spoke to said nothing about the trigger replacement. She just asked if I had an aftermarket trigger.

I just spoke with them on the phone because the confirmation I received from the online warranty registration wasn't clear and way to vague for my tastes. They got everything they needed from me from the registration. I will be shipped a box with a box within 72 hours. I asked why I had to register again even though they have all my info since thats how they contacted me in the 1st place. They just want to be sure that they have all the latest contact information for each customer. She also asked if I have an aftermarket trigger. I do not. Easy peasy.

It also pretty clearly shows it in an open/pulled out position. Just because it cant be removed doesn't mean it cant be moved at all. Just my 2c.

I'm curious how this will affect the MCX AR conversion kits and using them on a standard AR lower as they originally advertised. Will those people need to send in their lowers as well to have trigger work done?

I ordered the 9" 300BLK upper kit (last April) and was planning to use it on my 516 lower (ATF approved SBR lower). I currently have the SSA-E trigger in that lower.

I just got off the phone with CS. They were very helpful. I have to send back my entire rifle too. They confirmed that they will send my current Timney two-stage trigger back to me. It is a pain in the butt. If this is the most I have to complain about this holiday season (not including politics), I would say its not bad at all.


They also confirmed the new trigger will be Geissele specific to the MCX.

I asked about this because I"m doing the same thing. I have an SBR Lower and waiting for my 300blk 9in AR kit.

The CS rep said there should be no issues with those kits by the time they ship and they will work with any mil-spec trigger. I didn't push him, but the question is ... if the upper is mil-spec why wouldn't it work on any mil-spec trigger.

It could be a legal issue. Triggers are one of those things companies are touch about. I've had friends send pistols (from other companies) in for service and they come back with the stock trigger installed and person's custom trigger. Legally they could only send the firearm back with a factory trigger.

just my 2-cents

Thanks for posting this. I was thinking about calling them to ask, but figured they had their hands full after todays announcement...
